Artist's Statement

"My work is a conversation between the subconscious, the educated self, the medium used, and the artpiece- during the progression of it. I use recognizable and personal symbols to create my own allegories. It is spontaneous from the start, and I gather information by observation and osmosis, personal trials and gains, and research. I invite the viewers to have their own relationships with my paintings, use their own imaginations, and invite their own responses. My largest concerns are spatial relationships, form, and the tactile experience with each particular medium."
